Journals - Owen don't read this!

So I would like honest opinions on these journals that I have made. Would you buy them? If so why and if not why not? The first two are slightly flawed due to teething problems with the bind it all machine! Because of the flaws I'm trying to decide of I should add them to my etsy store - they would obviously go into the whoops section but what do you think? Decisions decisions!

The first one you may have seen before but I have added the word travel along the bottom with scrabble tile style letters.

It has an extra hole at the top where I got carried away with the bind it all machine!

This next one you won't have seen yet and I love the colours etc - it's just a pity that I didn't line the machine up properly and it has two extra holes too!

The last picture is of the back cover - the insides of the covers have also been covered in coordinating paper.

This last one is not going to be for sale as it's a present for my father in law for fathers day (I'm pretty sure he doesn't read the blog but) - you can still let me know what you think though!

He goes to lots of meetings and always has scrappy bits of paper and then they get lost etc so I thought I would make him a notebook!

Anyway - let me know what you think about selling the slightly flawed ones on Etsy - oh and whether you like them too!

The note books are great and are getting better each time you make one. Owen's one looks really good. He'll love it!! The others could certainly go in the whoops box, why not!

I've got a bag of stamps for you - just crying out (can you hear them?!) to be added to one of these note books!!!!!!!

You could do little kiddie ones too with some of the vintage prints from books - themed too.....of course - get them made and get them sold!!!!!!!!!!!!

Blooming 'eck!!! Your head must hurt with the number of creative ideas that are in there!!! The notebooks look great. I like the travel one with all the stamps amd images on it.
Great stuff as ever!

Wonderful journals! :) I love the stamp one, would be a great thing to take backpacking and would def. be a conversation starter. Especially if a person from one of the countries stamps noticed and started up a conversation. :)

Yesss! I absolutely love them!

These are very lovely. How about making the holes a feature with a key ring and some charms or a hanging ribbon?

Absolutely fantastic, I love the colours of the orange themed one, and the retro travel one looks really good with the letters done in tiles. Well done very inspirational.
